You may have heard about the 2014 individual and family health insurance enrollment window. If you did, congrats because many have no idea what I am talking about! Regardless of how learned you are regarding Obamacare, don’t hold your breath. As with many other mandates, the open enrollment window for individuals has been extended. CoveredCalifornia and certain insurance companies have opened their enrollment window through April 15th. That must be our lucky day, where you can pay your taxes and sign up for the latest, greatest, standardized health insurance plans for 2014.
If you have a qualifying event (QE) during the year then you will have a special enrollment period (SEP). QE’s are basically life changing events such as births, divorce or loosing a job.
